Benedict Cumberbatch dishes on his role as Doctor Strange in the upcoming Marvel film.
Even though Doctor Strange isn’t set to hit theaters for quite a while, it’s never too soon to hear more. So Benedict Cumberbatch has actually been sharing on his preparation process and how he feels about his being cast.
“Marvel is a stable of bringing out ordinary comic characters and turning them into screen-like gods. It’s very different, it’s an Astral Plane. There’s a huge new element to this Marvel universe that’s going to be employed in building this story and this character. But you know, I’m really excited about it, about working with Scott [Derrickson] whose imagination is endless, and all the boys and girls at Marvel who know what they’re doing.”
He goes on to share on how he’s preparing for the role —
“There weren’t many comics in my household — [in a self-mocking voice] “I’m so deprived.” We didn’t have Marvel so much. But you can bet your bottom dollar I’m reading them now, avidly.”
